This gorgeous landmark visual exploration of nature printing features dozens of different techniques and hundreds of rare images. Hailed as the earliest precursor to photography, nature printing is the practice of using impressions from the surface of a natural object such as leaves, flowering plants, ferns, seaweed and even snakes to produce an image. Co-author Matthew Zucker has spent decades curating the most extensive collection of nature prints ever assembled and this volume presents them side by side in a visually stunning overview of printing methods over 150 years.
